One Plant, Two Flower Colours

One plant, two flower colours

One plant, two flower colours

Two very pretty ivy leaved pelargoniums you might think and indeed they are very pretty but it is in fact one plant – most bizarre and I really don’t understand it.  I have had a good check and it isn’t two plants in the same pot or anything like that. It could be that the whiter flower will fade to the darker color but I am sure I would have noticed this before; although having decided to give up the plot I do feel as though my eyes are opened a fresh to the garden. There is one clear stem coming out of the pot splitting into two stems and one has a bright pink flower and one the whiter flower.

I really don’t understand how this happens.  Could it be that the plant being stressed may have caused it? Could the wet weather and lack of real heat/sun be a reason?
